Questions you might have now…
We know this is a lot of information to take in only five minutes, that’s why we’re going to summarize it all in some frequent questions that you might be asking yourself right now.
Can I post ads without registration ?
Depends on the website. In this case, if you’re using Weladama.com, you can’t because the site asks you to register before posting your free classified ad.
Luckily, this is a very fast process: it will take you 2-3 minutes to join, and once you’re a member of Weladama, tons of customers will be able to see your products or services.
Important fact: once you publish your ad, Weladama takes within 1 to 72 hours to process it, just to verify it, to make sure it’s legit and according to the site catalog. This is a measure to prevent consumers from scams or higher priced products and to verify that the seller can deliver the product.
How can I post ads in Weladama.com ?
After you register and verify your account, posting ads it’s a very easy process.
Click the button “post ad” and start adding the information of your item/product/service. Now, since the information is the most important part of the ad, we’re going to give you some advice:
First, be specific. Write a paragraph of 100 words describing your product: what it is, color, model, size, weight, if it’s new or used, and any other detail. If your item description is too long, customers won’t read it all.
Second, don’t lie. This might seem silly to you but believe this: reputation in websites is very important, especially if you want to keep selling products or services. Some people tend to exaggerate when writing an item description and, if the costumers buy it and find out they paid for something that’s not real, you can get bad reviews.
And what will happen if you get a bad reputation online? Your sells are going to reduce.
Third, a picture is worth a thousand words. This is true, especially for selling products. Even if you have the perfect description for your product, when the picture isn’t good enough, buyers will think your item has no quality at all. Remember that they’re comparing your product with other ones online, so yours need to look as professional as possible.
You can navigate in Weladama.com and see the pictures other people use for their items.
Fourth and last, don’t get crazy with your price. We know you want to see profits really soon, but if your item is too expensive, not many people will click on your ad. If you sell too low, you might not earn much money.
So, we suggest you check similar products on Weladama.com or any other classified ad website and try to sell your item at the same price so you can compete.
Can I post any free classified ad I want ?
Of course, you can. You can sell properties, vehicles, computers, smartphones, accessories, bikes, and anything else you want to. The sky is the limit, Weladama isn’t. The process is completely free.
The website also divides the ads into categories, so it’s important that you select the right category so costumers can find you easily.
Can I start a business with Weladama.com ?
Yes, you can and it’s as easy as we explained before. Since you’re not paying for anything and you can post many free classified ads, you can increase your profits with the minimum effort and without leaving your house.
Just post the items you want to sell (remember all the advice we previously gave you) and wait for the customers to contact you and buy.
What if I just want to buy and not sell anything? What do I do?
This is a much simpler process. Many free classified ads sites will ask you to register in their database, verify your email and check your phone number (for more transparent transactions and to avoid fraud and scams).
At least Weladama.com assures honest transactions that way, and we highly recommend you websites with this kind of procedures.
Once you’re a member of the website, you can start navigating in the category section and clicking the items you’re interested in. Then buy the products or services you want and contact the seller, so they can send you your new acquisition.
Popular Categories that you can try are Land for sale in Sri Lanka , House for sale in Sri Lanka and Car sale in Sri Lanka
It’s really easy and you don’t even need to get out of your house to buy stuff you like.
Are there other sites for free classified ads ?
Yes, there are few more popular sites too. These sites are good too. Even though small sellers can post ads, they’ll compete with bigger brands and wholesalers that have more reviews, making their growing process slower.
So, if you’re just starting in the business, we highly recommend you to try Weladama.com as well, because it’s a smaller site with least competition and since it’s still growing, more buyers and sellers will join within time.
